Hi, guys. I have some atherosclerotic changes in my coronary arteries. My doctor suggests me to go to CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting). I would like to know whether this is an open or closed heart surgery. I would appreciate all your replies. Thanks to all who reply to my post. Bye!

Hello. CABG is performed when there is narrowing in coronary arteries. It compromises blood to reach heart muscle. CABG uses vein graft to bypass the narrowing point. In that way, blood reaches the heart muscle. This is an open heart surgery. I hope everything will be all right. You can consult your doctor about the details. I hope I’ve helped a little. Good luck!
